With the summer over and school back in session, I just want to take a moment to congratulate our scouts on a great summer. The Troop ( and we are talking about the boys ) provided significant assistance the the 4 Rivers District Cub Scout Day Camp. They had opportunity to attend Camp Rodney or Camp Henson. We had a crew attend Northern Tier High Adventure Camp in Canada and Great lakes exploring the territory by canoe. One scout was awarded the coveted triple crown for attending three high adventure camps. We held our annual Aquatics Camp at Lake Kerr. At our Annual Summer Picnic / Court of Honor we awarded over 120 merit badges and acknowledged 16 Rank advancements. Wow!
Looking forward to the Fall – we have a number of camping activities and merit badge opportunities.
We will be camping at Antietam Battlefield National Park where the boys will Bike the C&O Canal from Brunswick to Sharpsburg or Hike the Antietam Historic trail. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the National Parks and it’s a privilege that our boys have such great resources to complement our programs. We will participate and assist in Woodsmoke and spend another weekend backpack camping a lower segment of the C&O. Planning is progressing for December – March activities when we will forward to our scout skill weekend and March Merit Badge Madness.
Congratulations Scouts ( and our volunteer adult scouters and parents that make Troop 769 programs thrive!)
